“Every detail matters,” impoverished carpenter and toymaker Ole Kristiansen told his son. “Only the best is good enough.”
Godtfred, the third of five children, never forgot his father’s words.
Together, they worked to build their toy business. Neither gave up on their dream despite three separate fires that threatened to raze their hopes to the ground.
“Children need toys that strengthen their imaginations and creativity,” said Godtfred.
Ole beamed with pride when his son redesigned his plastic interlocking bricks. Children loved them.
Godtred blinked back tears at Ole’s untimely funeral. “Fader, I promise you, I will make Lego a success.”
- Note: Lego is from the Danish “Leg Godt” which means “Play Well”. 😀
